Insects in AZ Lakes

For my first AZ fly outing, I went to the Rim, thanks to the advice from Payson Lazer Line. I visited four lakes, Woods Canyon, Bear Canyon, Willow Springs, and Knoll, but fished only two because my grandson was with me so I didn't take my pontoon boat. He and I caught some fish from Woods from a rented boat.

Most of Colorado's high mountain lakes would not have trout without being stocked. I assume there are few if no fish in these lakes because of environmental conditions which probably affects insect life - no bugs, no fish.

While visiting the Rim lakes, I did not see one trout rise to the surface. Is this because there is a lack of insect activity or was I just in the right place at the wrong time?
